There's no excuse for my laziness in answering your mails, Chuck, I just seem to be unable to take care of my personal correspondence. There's an unanswered mail from you floating around on my desktop for almost a year. All that doesn't mean , that I'm not appreciating your mails, it just means, that I'm totally unorganized, overworked and incapable. It kind of works likes this : Oh, I gotta answer this mail in a quiet minute and not in a rush, but that minute never seems to come. Anyway, enough of the selfaccusation and back to the mail itself. I'm glad you called and I'm glad to see you're still around,I have been following your work and your website since quite a while.
Yes, those were the days, huh ? I often think how lucky I was to be part of this and I totally unappreciated it at the time andI underestimated the impact and importance of that picture, I just had a great time back then and I was enjoying myself.
For those of you, who are just listening in to this, Chuck Gammage and I met on Roger Rabbit, Chuck animated Baby Hermann and many other memorable things and his running his own studio with some breathtaking animation now, which you may check out under the above link.
These pics are some caricatures Chuck did of me and Alfred.
It's great to hear from you Chuck, take care and I hope to run into you again someday soon.
